Why should somebody as busy as the very popular music director and singer, M. Jayachandran, a television presence like Rimi Tomy or any of the very talented and busy musicians give up a whole day for palliative care?

On October 11, all these artistes and many others performed in support of palliative care at ‘Sangeetha Sandhya’, a musical event organized by Pallium India to commemorate World Palliative Care Day.

M. Jayachandran has always supported palliative care and this is the third time he has organized such events on World Palliative Care Day. All the musicians who participated in the event volunteered their services pro bono and played to a packed hall.

The aim of the event was to raise awareness among people so that pain relief and palliative care will reach each one of the needy in our country.The media partner for Sangeetha Sandhya was Mathrubhumi. Mathrubhumi News channel ran streamers on the event and media in general carried the story prominently.

M. Jayachandran, the 14 musicians who volunteered their time, the media that supported it – all show how warmly Kerala embraces palliative care. They give the answer to the question in this year’s theme of the world palliative care day – Who cares? They proclaim, “WE DO”.
